SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, announced today that it has appointed Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, to distribute PernixData FVP™ software to U.S. public sector customers. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will function as PernixData's primary distributor and master government aggregator. In addition, the two companies will co-invest in sales and market development activities to promote a new decoupled storage architecture that optimizes application performance and lowers storage costs for government and education entities.
"Carahsoft is a trusted partner for government agencies and educational institutions seeking the most innovative and proven technologies for storage and virtualization," said Michael Shrader, Vice President of Intelligence and Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft. "PernixData FVP software is the perfect addition to our portfolio of products, providing substantial and immediate value to our reseller partners and customers who are looking to solve storage performance and cost issues in a completely non-disruptive and scalable manner."
PernixData FVP software, the premier platform for scale-out storage acceleration, virtualizes high speed server resources like flash and RAM into a clustered acceleration tier that enables IT administrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively scale-out storage performance completely independent of storage capacity. The result is unprecedented read and write performance for all virtual machines (VMs), without the need to change existing server and storage infrastructure. By creating a new software-based infrastructure for server side storage intelligence, PernixData fundamentally changes how storage is designed and operated in virtual data centers.
